Summary

This report highlights the challenges faced in ensuring that resources are adequately transferred from county authorities to service delivery units and the impact on the economy. The findings include personnel issues, ranging from major capacity gaps, lack of logistics, to low compensation and new techniques, resulting into low motivation and performance.

Highlights

  • To ensure the success of the AfT and NV 2030, GoL is compelled to heed lessons learned from the implementation of the Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS, 2008-12) and the unfavorable results from the Public Expenditure & Financial Accountability (PEFA) Assessment and Human Development Public Expenditure Report (PER) (World Bank) conducted by development partners in 2012.
  • The survey is needed, therefore, to determine the current variance between allocation and execution at service delivery units.
  • The findings include personnel issues, ranging from major capacity gaps, lack of logistics, to low compensation and new techniques, resulting into low motivation and performance. Service delivery institutions highlighted that necessary agriculture and security service materials were not properly supplied, thereby hindering performance.
  • Ministries, county authorities and service delivery units have recently begun to adopt a reporting and oversight culture, and were amazed by the continuous concern and determination exhibited by government to ensure the efficient and appropriate use of public funds to the benefit of its citizens.
